    Ronda Rousey is reportedly closer than we think to starting her career with WWE.

    According to two sources speaking with USA Today, Rousey is finalizing details of her move to WWE. The two sources, who were noted to be close to Rousey, requested anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced; WWE did not respond when contacted by USA TODAY Sports for a statement today.

    Rousey’s move to WWE has long been rumored, including a speculated singles match against Charlotte Flair and a ‘Horsewomen vs Horsewomen’ match at Wrestlemania 34, and both Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have publicly stated ‘the opportunity is there’ for Rousey if she wanted to join the promotion and leave her mixed martial arts career.

    Rousey has previously appeared on air in a non-wrestling capacity at Wrestlemania 34, and more recently at the WWE Mae Young Classic tapings.

    205 Live Superstars Face Off In UFC Video Game (Video)

    205 Live superstars Tony Nese and Noam Dar recently faced off against one another on the UFC 2 video game, as seen on the UpUpDownDown. The duo have both been floundering in obscurity in the cruiserweight division, despite being two of the most talented guys on the roster.

    UFC Fighter Cuts Bizarre ‘Promo’ Following Victory Last Night (Video)

    UFC middleweight Luke Rockhold defeated David Branch in Pittsburgh last night, with Branch submitting to the former champion due to strikes. Following the fight, however, Rockhold caused a stir by calling out Georges St-Pierre in one of the most bizarre promos in UFC history. Luke seemed to be encouraging GSP to back out of his scheduled bout against Michael Bisping at UFC 217 in November, so that the 32-year-old could take his place.

    This week’s episode of Bischoff on Wrestling features part two of Eric Bischoff’s three part interview series with former WWE & WCW World Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan

    Some of Eric’s comments from his “The Business Of Pro Wrestling” segment at the top of the show have been transcribed below.

    On CM Punk’s decision not to cut pro wrestling style promos going in to his fight at UFC 203:

    EB: I think he’s really smart. Especially after… I mean, how do you follow Conor McGregor and all the craziness that went down there with Nate Diaz? That was some really good stuff. Watching those guys throw plastic water bottles at each other that didn’t have any water in them. I thought it was classic pro wrestling. It was intense and it was effective. It did a great job. I think for CM Punk it’s his first fight. To come out and start cutting promos, as we say in the wrestling business, I think it would turn the hardcore UFC audience against him. He’s already treading thin ice because he didn’t come up the way most guys do. He doesn’t have the background that most guys do. I think there’s a segment of the audience that thinks that he’s just getting put in this position because of the name he built in professional wrestling. To a large degree that’s true. No one can deny it. If CM Punk hadn’t been a huge star in WWE he wouldn’t be fighting for UFC this weekend. I think he’s smart. I think there’s enough interest in the fight especially coming off the Brock Lesnar fight. For him to do promos right now I think would turn the audience against him. 

    Eric starts the show by chatting about his upcoming live podcast event on September 25th with former WWE & WCW World Champion Goldberg before WWE Clash of The Champion in Indianapolis. (Tickets available at MarkOutMoments.com)

    This week’s “The Business of Professional Wrestling” segment features Eric discussing:

    • Triple H’s return to the WWE helping Kevin Owens capture the WWE Universal Championship
    • CM Punk’s chances in his fight this weekend at UFC 203 against Mickey Gall
    • Punk’s decision not to cut “pro wrestling style promos” leading in to the fight
    • Scott Hall’s recent relapse with alcohol and his public apology following the incident
    • More…

    Eric then airs the second part of his three part interview series with former WWE & WCW World Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan. During this installment of the interview they discuss:

    • Their experiences working with AJ Styles in TNA
    • How difficult it was for Hulk to make the choice to turn heel in WCW
    • What a John Cena heel turn would look like to Hulk
    • Hulk’s fond memories of Pat Patterson ad why he thought he was one of the best “finish men”
    • More…

  • Brock Lesnar May Not Be Eligible For WWE SummerSlam Match; Speculation on Potential Suspension & What It Could Mean For WWE 0 CommentsPosted by Yahoo! Sports - NHL News on July 16, 2016 under Wrestling

    As noted, Brock Lesnar is facing a world of issues right now as UFC was earlier today informed of a potential out-of-competition violation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), stemming from a test taken before his fight at UFC 200. 

    This has all kinds of implications for WWE, although as it stands all we have to go on is speculation as we continue to wait for an official statement from the company. As WWE and UFC have never shared talent on a scale of this magnitude before, there is no official precedent set to compare with Lesnar’s case. There will be an investigation by UFC, and it’s worth nothing that there is still a chance that secondary testing comes back negative. 

    We also still don’t know what the test popped for, and because of the nature of UFC as a private organization, unless Lesnar wants to reveal it himself (and given his history that seems extraordinarily unlikely) we may never know. There have been reports confirming that he was not flagged for any kind of street drugs. If he was caught with steroids he will face a two year suspension from MMA which will most likely, effectively end his career in the sport. While he wouldn’t commit to doing another fight so quickly after UFC 200, indication was that he was extremely happy being back in MMA, and if the communication between UFC and WWE was there and remained there, he would likely continue to do both. 

    On the WWE end, things are more complicated. WWE legally has no obligated to suspend anyone for anything, as they are a non-sanctioned company and handle all their testing and policy-making internally. If it does come out that he was on steroids through UFC and the USADA, they could take that at face value and suspend him in conjunction with their Wellness Policy, which as a first time violation puts him out 30 days. If they acted immediately, which they may not be able to do because of the complicated nature of the situation, he could be back in time for the SummerSlam match against Randy Orton. It’s very possible WWE could also want to test Lesnar themselves before making any decisions. 

    Another layer in this convoluted tale is that New York remains a commissioned state under the jurisdication of the NYSAC, which is one the last remaining places that still regulates pro wrestling. In most cases it’s just a doctor doing basic testing (blood pressure, etc) to make sure an athlete is healthy before a contest. But in this case, if the NYSAC decides to uphold any kind of punishment handed down by the NSAC (Nevada State), Lesnar could be altogether ineligible to compete at SummerSlam – which takes place in Brooklyn – regardless of what WWE does. 

    This is all extremely speculative at this point. We will continue to bring you updates on Brock Lesnar as they become available.

    ESPN is reporting interim UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been pulled from his title unification bout against Daniel Cormier at UFC 200 on Saturday, after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency informed Jones of a potential doping violation on Wednesday.

    During a breaking news conference at the MGM Grand Hotel, UFC President Dana White announced the news that the main event bout has been called off, and you can watch White’s announcement in the video below.

    Jones tested positive for a banned substance in an out-of-competition sample taken June 16 by USADA, said Jeff Novitzky, UFC’s vice president of athlete health and performance. USADA administers the UFC’s anti-drug policy.

    Novitzky added that there is not enough time for a full review of the drug test, so the bout has been called off as a result.

    Jones has never tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in his career, however he did test positive for traces of cocaine prior to a fight against Cormier in January 2015.

    The heavyweight fight featuring a returning Brock Lesnar taking on Mark Hunt will now headline UFC 200, which takes place on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena. Earlier tonight, we reported a possible major spoiler on Brock Lesnar’s SummerSlam opponent, and you can read that report at this link.

    MMA journalist Ariel Helwani took to Twitter tonight following an incredible UFC 199 pay-per-view, stating that he and his MMAFighting.com crew had been escorted out by security prior to the main event, and stripped of their credentials. The reason? Helwani was the writer responsible for breaking the news that Brock Lesnar was close to signing a deal to fight at next month’s UFC 200 event; a breaking news report that has now been confirmed and made official. 

    Photographer Esther Lin and video director E. Casey Leydon were apparently caught in the crossfire, and were also removed with Ariel. 

    I was escorted out of the building by Zuffa staff before the main event. Credential taken away, too. Didn’t see Bisping realize his dream.

    — Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) June 5, 2016

    My long-time colleagues @ekc and @allelbows were also escorted out of the building w/ me. Sorry to report no post-fight coverage tonight.

    — Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) June 5, 2016

    I love this sport & this job with all my heart. Did nothing unethical. I reported fight news. That’s it. & then told we’re banned for life.

    — Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) June 5, 2016

    My teammates and friends @Ekc and @allelbows are the very best at what they do. I wish they didn’t have to leave with me. They did nothing.

    — Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) June 5, 2016

    Look, I know this isn’t pro wrestling news, but this is something that can not go unnoticed. Ariel is a respected journalist, and even if he weren’t, this isn’t okay. The Lesnar story was massive. He did his job. Any journalist in the UFC or WWE field, if given that info, would have been stupid not to run with it. It enrages me to see a company like UFC treating a passionate fan and dedicated reporter this way. It shows a complete lack of understanding (or total apathy, perhaps?) for journalism. I am supremely disappointed.

  • CM Punk Not Progressing Well as a Fighter, Concerns About How He Has Fared In Sparring 0 CommentsPosted by ESPN.com new services on May 15, 2016 under Wrestling

    Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    WON is reporting that CM Punk is not progressing well as a fighter. Punk’s original fight date was pushed back because of back and shoulder injuries. His first scheduled opponent is Mickey Gall.

    It is, reportedly, expected that Gall will “run through” Punk whenever they do fight. So far in his short career, Gall is 2-0.  The rumors WON is hearing is that Punk has not fared well live sparring. 

    The concerns with Punk’s progression have grown because it has taken him so long. Cain Velazquez had the same surgery as Punk a few weeks earlier and is on the UFC 200 card. 

    Punk’s first fight was originally hoped to be in the summer of 2015 or the fall. Injuries and transition into MMA have caused the delay for his UFC debut. As for the FS1 reality show that will determine Punk’s opponent, WON has not heard anything new other than that they have begun taping the show. 

    Since the injuries, UFC has kept a low profile on Punk. The signing of Punk brought massive media attention, and WON still thinks Punk’s first fight will still garner media attraction. 

    WON notes that since he may not be able to pull off proving his critics wrong, the next moves for Punk could be interesting.
